The Moberly SCORE chapter, "Counselors to America's Small Business" is seeking help in the Moberly area. SCORE Counselors share a belief that small business owners and entrepreneurs are more likely to succeed if they have a mentor to guide them. Area retired and active businesspeople act as counselors and volunteer their time mentoring small business owners and entrepreneurs. The reward of observing first-hand a fledging business get off the ground is more than enough payment for SCORE members.
SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping businesses start, grow and succeed nationwide. Their mission is to provide resources and expertise to maximize the success of existing and emerging small businesses. They are a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
